Dating from the 1870s, this splendid brise fan is at once both beautiful and useful... for cooling and flirting! It is a bit larger than most fans I usually present in my shop - this one is scaled well for mid-size to larger bebes, and certainly for the largest of French fashion ladies. But the big girls need accessories too, don't they?

The fan measures 6 1/2" (16 cm) wide when fully open, and 3 3/4" long when closed. The front face is painted in oil with a scene of a fashionable Lady in a garden setting holding, what else?, a fan! The ends of each blade is ornamented with a tiny daisy. The back face of the fan is plain. The blades are held together with a matching cream silk ribbon, which has been replaced recently, guaranteeing that the fan will have many more years of enjoyment. The loop that holds the blades together appears to be gold washed at the very least. A fine piece in great condition!
